THANK YOU everyone for helping the crisis in Japan! Adsense revenue for March (DisplacedGuy.Com) came to around $4 not as much as we hoped for, but every little bit helps. We promised to match all revenue made in March, we went ahead did that and more; increased the donation amount to $10, something respectable so that the transaction costs don’t end up amounting for to high a percentage of the actual donation. The details off the donation including amount and tracking code are at the bottom of post should anyone second guess our integrity.
I apologize for the drop in quality articles on the site. I’ve been busy with personal issues that seemed extemely important, but in the scheme of things nothing compared to what people are going through in Japan. I finally had the time to get up to speed with the current world news and learn of the situation in Japan. I can’t think of any other way to describe it except, “Sad”.
The DisplacedGuy site was down for the entire day March 5 and part of the day March 6 because of personal financial difficulties my hosting provider turned off the service until I paid the $9.95 monthly fee on Sunday March 6, 2011. I don’t have much to offer; but pledge 100% of the March revenue earned from all of my websites to the American Red Cross. Please don’t click on any ads that you wouldn’t normally click however or my account will get banned by Google for fraud.
In my next DisplacdGuy actual statistics I will be reporting that Adsense revenues have been at record levels (but very low compared to other sites) and approaching my next goal of $30/monthly. I have a donate button on my site; which I put there in hopes of donations to cover web hosting costs, if anyone should be the first to use that button (hint) anything donated above my $9.95 hosting fee will be added to the American Red Cross donation on behalf of The DisplacedGuy community.
I pray for all those in need across the world and those in Japan and hope that the Nuclear problems do not become a severe crisis.
I know us Americans aren’t always viewed in the best way because our government seems to do things that contradict what most of us “feel” but we really do love to help others. It just feels good and it is the right thing.
